  Hops CO2
Humulus lupulus, CO2 extracted from blossoms in Germany.
• Useful for deodorants or foot-care products
• Highly anti-bacterial
• Effective at low dilutions


We had a request for this extract so we imported it.

I’ve seen Hops extract highly recommended for use in deodorants or for foot-care products. The lipophilic ingredients, humulones and lupulones, are highly antibacterial (primarily against gram positive bacteria) which are responsible for the deodorant activity.

Please note that Hops Extract is proven effective at dilutions as low as 0.1 to 0.2% (that is 1/10th or 2/10ths of one percent), literally a single drop per ounce of base. This would be in an oil-based product. I am contemplating infusing a drop or two in some clay or arrowroot powder for a deodorant powder.

Please note that at cool room temperature this extract is quite thick, ranging from the texture of molasses to semi-solid. You will want to warm it gently before pouring it.

  • 5 Relaxing and soothing scent

    Posted by Kathy from New York on 02/21/2019 Verified Purchase

    I have seen hops used in blends to ease insomnia, and I can see why. It’s a soothing scent, almost grassy, that would blend beautifully with some other relaxing oils such as catnip, valerian, or vetiver. It’s going to be a little tricky to work with (mine is semi-solid at room temperature) but I am sure it will be worth the effort!
